As a Black Deaf researcher and author, Carolyn McCaskill reflects on her journey on interviewing Black Deaf community members about the use and presence of Black ASL, which resulted in the publication of "The Hidden Treasure of Black ASL: Its History and Structure" with other authors. Her reflections offer important insights on the transformative effects of bringing the Black Deaf experience and perspectives to researching sign language and cultural experiences.
